Ryan Roeder

Ryan Roeder

Professor, School of Applied Chemical and Environmental Sciences

Ryan Roeder holds a BSc in chemistry from Lander University in Greenwood, South Carolina, and is currently a PhD candidate at Clemson University in Clemson, South Carolina in the materials science and engineering department under Prof. Stephen H. Foulger. While at Clemson, Ryan was a Gregg-Graniteville Fellowship recipient and his graduate research centred on the functionalization of core-shell polymer colloids using ‘click’ chemistry.

In 2012, Ryan returned to Canada as a research associate at Queen’s University in both the chemical and environmental engineering departments under Prof. Michael Cunningham and Prof. Pascale Champagne. The research project focused on surface functionalization of nanocrystalline cellulose using controlled radical polymerization.

Ryan joined the Sheridan community in 2014 as a partial-load faculty member in both the chemical sciences and engineering technology programs. He especially enjoys teaching in the laboratory, where he shares his excitement for chemistry with the students.

Ryan lives in Milton with his wife Jessica, who works as an optometric assistant in Oakville. When he’s not teaching, Ryan volunteers as a baseball instructor and will be coaching the Hamilton Jr. baseball team this summer.
